Fix balance ring


if you have a regular top load direct drive washer and if the tub is tilted off balance remove the frame of the washer,look at the back bottom of the frame,there's a spring that is connected to the bottom of the frame and hooks the the back of the tub,sometimes the frame rusts out and the spring rips through the drill hole in the frame,you have to drill a new hole in the frame and reconnect the spring.i've never seen a balance ring damaged.so this is the first thing i would check if washer is off balance.

I have a Kenmore Heavy Duty 60 series Washer. The agitator is out of balance, so I took it apart to find the counterweight spring was not attached to anything. Where does it attach too, it is already...


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.########) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

You should be able to see where the springs attach by looking at the base diagram.

Following also is the Whirlpool / Kenmore PDF on how the transmissions work but it also has a good diagram of where the springs attach.

I don't believe that the counterweight spring attaches to the brake.

Kenmore Oasis washer model 110.27032600; trapped hidden water


when you tipped the washer was the drain hose still attached? and if so was the drain hose elevated? most top load washers will have an amount of leftover water in the bottom of the tub. with the drain hose off and the washer tipped towards the rear you should lose any excess water. also try to open the top of the agitator to see if there is any water trapped there. hope this helps....

Kenmore 70 Series top load washer makes noise during spin cycle


There are three springs under your machine. two that look the same....one on each side of the tub. and one in the back of the tub. it is common on machines that are a bit older for the rear spring to wear itself through the metal at the bottom. if this is the case, it is best to get a new spring and just drill another small hole next to the old one. you might be able to get by with using the old spring for a bit longer....just drill another hole.

Unstable tub


There are springs inside the unit that stablize the tub during spin. If the springs are not attached correctly the tub will be off balance. Sometimes the Balance Ring loses it's fluid due to a crack or leak and the washer will spin off balance. THis requires a service tech to dissemble the machine.

There are a few things that can cause this issue.
1. The counter balance spring broke or the mounting hole for the spring rusted through.
2. One or more snubber pads may have come off.
3. The balance ring may have come loose from the basket or the ring has been damaged and the fluid has leaked out..

Start by removing the shell as follows:
A.) The trim on either side can be pried off from the top, grasp and pull forward to expose to expose a screw.
B.) With console lifted you will find a lid switch connector (white in color). Unplug the switch from the connector.
C.) There will be two brass colored clips. Place a flat blade screwdriver straight down into the opening on top of the washer and into the groove of the clip. Push the screwdriver down and away from you and the clip will release.
D.) Open the lid of the washer and place your hand under the front rim of the opening (DO NOT grab the wash tub). Tilt and slide cabinet forward to remove.

1.) The counter balance spring is located in the bottom rear. It should be attached between the cabinet and a bracket on the tub.
2.) Inspect snubber and corner pads. May be brown or white in color.

3. Remove tub ring by pushing down then lifting each locking tab.
Inspect balance ring for proper fit and any cracks. By moving/shaking ring you should hear liquid sloshing around.
